Towards the web 2.0 interview

On Monday, Reuters arranged for UK Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg to be interviewed live by the social web.

We’ve been edging towards this with previous social media segments in Reuters-hosted NewsMaker events like those with Conservative leader David Cameron and World Bank President Bob Zoellick who have taken questions from Twitter and the like after making public policy speeches.

The art of social media

I had an unnerving experience at an event last week.  Matt Buck, who had been asking me probing questions during a presentation at the News Innovation un-conference in London, caught up with me afterwards, said he was a cartoonist and showed me a quickfire caricature he’d done of me (right).

I should say that I have tried and failed several times to teach myself how to do caricature.  I have nothing but admiration for those who can capture the essence of someone in a few lines.
